Demi said: “I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction,

“What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time.

“It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.

“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support through this past week and beyond.”

“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and the road to recovery.

“The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out the other side.
